Discover Tuscany the slow way: our special offer for your extended stay in rural Tuscany.

Winter retreats in Tuscany

As you know, we run a vacation rental in Tuscany in my home village, Casina di Rosa (near Siena and the Maremma).

In fact, Casina di Rosa was my great-grandparents’ home. They built it, my mum was born in it. It’s always been in the family and always will.


With life getting busier and a bit more complicated with two young kids and work, winter short term rentals have started to be a bit too much for us. So last year we offered long term rental in the winter months for the first time. It was a very pleasant experience. We found lovely tenants who came to spend time in Civitella and joined in in the village life.

So we have decided to repeat this experience. We are therefore hoping to find somebody interested in spending a few months in our village, for work or just for leisure, between November and the end of March.

Casina di Rosa is ideal for people wanting to experience life in rural Tuscany. The village is small, but has all the essential services. A car is recommended, but buses are available to Siena and Grosseto.


Casina di Rosa is a retreat. It’s perfect if you want a quiet, romantic and peaceful extended stay in Tuscany. If you want to write, or study or just take some time off. We have had guests who have spent a month or two here to write or paint or just to travel the slow way. We offer a monthly price of 700 euros per month, inclusive of all expenses (rent, utilities, wifi, taxes). Or alternatively, 550 euros + expenses calculated on actual usage.


Please visit the rentals websites to find out more about them.
